FC Blackbird play in Kakkonen, the third tier in the Finnish football league. Formed in 1996, they come from the practically inpronouncable town of Jyväskylä in the centre of the country, known locally as the Athens of Finland. Now I can see you there smirking about their comedy name, but believe me, Finland is full of them. Some of their fellow league mates include Jalkapalloseura Airport City, FC Jazz Juniorit, Soccer Club Riverball and the frankly brilliant FC Santa Claus from Lapland.
